the country. i thought this was a very well orchestrated convention with michelle obama giving us more insight into barack obama the man. followed by bill clinton talking about the obama record on the economy and trying to bring people together. and then teeing it up for president obama to talk about what's next. and i thought that was very powerful. >> but you know, mo, the first lady did do a great job in her speech. bill clinton did an amazing job as well. the criticism of the president while he set out certain goals and said this is how many jobs i want to create, this is what i want to do as far as exports are concerned, the environment is concerned, he didn't go into specifics and lay out how he's going to achieve those goals, mo. that was the expectation at least by some folks. and they were disappointed he didn't use that venue to do it. >> well, look, this speech was really the first stop in the general election campaign. and this -- i don't believe -- i know there's a lot of people wondering what kind of bounce either side is going to get. i don't believe there is going to be much bo

of folks saying michelle obama knocked it out of the park, bill clinton and obama obama were no slouches either, of course, so who other than someone named clinton or obama really impressed you? >> i think that one of the other speeches that really stuck out for me, and i know was a big hit at the convention and with folks around the country was our keynote speaker, the first latino ever for a dnc keynote speaker, julian castro. and he really, i think, impressed the crowd not just with his personal story, but with his argument about how his personal story was not just the quintessential american story, but it was a story that was possible only in this great country and that the opportunities that were available to him to make him successful are the opportunities that are at stake in this election and that it was obama's policies that he's put in place and will continue to put in place to make sure that that american dream that he is now fulfilling is going to be available to everybody, regardless of how much money you make, where you come from, what family you were born into, because tha
, it will be in tomorrow. i read it. you quote michelle obama at the democratic convention in her speech, she said being president reveals who you are. you say so do campaigns and you're not happy with what's being revealed about mitt romney? how so? what do you think this tape reveals? >> well, there's a lot of us who have been waiting for a long time for some seminal moment for mitt romney to reveal his character and unfortunately, i'm afraid that this tape is exactly what that does but not in the way we had hoped for. it's getting harder to support him, getting harder to defend him. you know, i talked a lot about how i remember in september 2000, things were difficult, the dark days of september, and easy to bounce back, but when you start casting off half the country as victims, that causes a lot of pause for independents and people like me who cross the line in the mid '90s to join the republican party because of ideas like compassionate conservatism. i don't hear any of that from mitt romney. i'm trying to figure out what the broader vision and narrative is that takes care of the least among us. w
told michelle obama she had four kids in the military, she supported the president. is she a victim, a moocher? the problem mitt romney here is you're basically saying to the rest of you, you're utterly irrelevant, i don't care about you. i won't focus on you. >> of course, people who don't pay federal income tax do pay sales taxes and all kinds of other things. they contribute in other ways. it would seem unfair to characterize them in this way. thanks to all three of you. >>> ahead, new detail about the person behind the anti-islamic film at the center of the protests in the middle east. >>> plus, the panda. there's something special about the panda. now, that's what i call a test drive. silverado! the most dependable, longest lasting, full-size pickups on the road. so, what do you think?

're really la looking forward to the folks -- these are the big names we're seeing. michelle obama will be on tuesday night. she's not actually the keynote speaker. that will be the mayor of san antonio. but she's speaking tuesday night. a lot of people will pay attention to that. bill clinton, of course, wednesday, and he will be the speaker who initially puts the president's nomination in. thursday, of course, vice president joe biden and president obama. those will be their acceptance speeches. and it's kind of interesting. you know who won't be here? hillary clinton. she is traveling abroad as secretary of state. she's on a trip to the south pacific and russia. so she won't be here. she's often stayed above, as you know, the sort of political fray of domestic politics, as she's been secretary of state. but this is the first convention that she will have missed since 1968. >> the tradition is, as secretary of state, secretary of defense, even a secretary of the treasury, they stay away from overt politics, if you will, and as a result, they stay away from conventions on the demo
. as for the big speakers, let's go through the schedule. michelle obama, she's one of the major speakers on tuesday night. as is the keynote speaker julian castro. he is the mayor of san antonio, texas. he is somebody you can get to know pretty well. on wednesday, former president clinton will be the big speaker. thursday, we move from here to time warner cable arena to the football stadium. that's where haven't joe biden and president obama will give their renomination addresses. a little noisy here. we have buses going by. >> that's the way it goes. right when you start talking, all the activity has to begin. >> exactly. >> meantime we hear that vice-presidential pick on the republican side paul ryan is going to be in north carolina next week. will his arrival coincide with the convention? to f. if so, why? >> the romney campaign announced that paul ryan will be in greenville, north carolina, a couple hours from here. he'll there be for a rally. the convention starts the next day here. vice president joe biden was supposed to be in tampa, florida, last monday when the republican conven

wrestler picked up the first lady michelle obama. what is it with picking up the obamas? cnn political director mark preston joins me now. >> what do you think the secret service was thinking when that gentleman decided to pick the president up like that? >> i don't know. what is it? it's so bizarre. that pizza shop owner, i guess, was a republican, right? >> he was overcome with a little bit of excitement. who wouldn't be excited, i guess, if the president showed up at your pizza shop. >> he said as a republican he voted for obama in the last election. i take it he's going to vote for him again this time. mark, let's talk about this latest poll and the latest fundraising figures for the president. he has a lot to be happy about. >> he sure does. he's certainly seen a bump from what we've seen from this gallup poll. as you said, we'll have our own poll in just a few hours that will really gauge where we are in the race after both conventions are over. he has good news when it comes to fundraising. in the month of june, in the month of july president obama was outraised by the republica
of barack obama's first-term record, and they are deploying him now in swing states, even more than michelle obama, he's probably the biggest asset they have. but life is long. you never know when you're going to end up, that these two men are now embracing to this extent. >> life is really long. >> you know, the president got a bounce at the convention, and it's arguable that clinton played a big part in that. we have this new pew research center poll that i found real estate interesting. it showed, when they were asking, what was the highlight of the democratic convention, 29% bill clinton's speech, 16% said the president's speech, and michelle obama's speech was at 15%. so does that also mean that there is a downside to having president clinton -- >> oh, you mean overshadowing -- you know, he -- everybody knows hays not the candidate. i think he's a great character witness for the candidate. i think there was a dangerous dangeat the convention of that kind of a result, because you want your candidate to shine, not the person who is testifying on your behalf to shine. but i think right now
. i think the president and his family have already -- there they go. president obama and michelle obama boarding the plane taking off for portsmouth, new hampshire where of course president obama will hit the campaign trail. that is where dan lothian is already waiting for the president to arrive. so i'm sure the white house has already put out a statement on this jobs report. what's it saying? >> this is not the kind of numbers that would really put wind in the sails of the president as he bounces out of the democratic national convention. i've heard from two officials who tell me the president will in fact address the jobs numbers during his first stop here post the dnc convention here in new hampshire. so he will be addressing those job numbers. we'll be listening for what he has to say. we heard from the president's economic adviser who said in a statement in part, quote, while there is more work, there remains to be done, today's employment report provides further evidence that the u.s. economy is continuing to recover from the worst downturn since the great depression. going
pictures were published of the wife of president obama. i think michelle obama would take a different view about pictures of her topless than she might about someone on a beach in miami. i think that's the key difference. >> well, some might argue and probably very few, but some might argue that even if you're in a private home, is it ever wise to go outside of that home and take your top off? >> i don't think anyone would disagree with that. i have worked for celebrity clients for over 20 years. if any celebrity client came to me and asked me whether it was ever wise to take their top off in a public place anywhere, i would say absolutely not. so i think kate, the duchess of cambridge was unwise to do that. i think, however, that the punishment is inappropriate. it does not seem to me that justifies a worldwide set of pictures on the basis of and moments in discretion where she thought she was safe and where she thought she was private. >> well, it just comes on the heels of the prince harry scandal and the nude pictures taken of him in a private hotel room. >> well, i think this is absol
